Having already read Faith Cox Bailey’s brief biography of D.L. Moody I was looking forward to this one which promised to be a bit more in depth.
Tim Challies has issued a call for testimonies. I think it’s a great idea. Can I encourage everyone who has created an account here to post their testimony by next Tuesday? (April 3, 2007) (If you can’t be rushed I understand).
It is a little unfair to leave 1 Timothy 2:15 hanging out on its own for so long especially since it is part of the context and understanding its meaning requires linking it to the prior couple of verses regarding Eve as well as verse 12 itself.
I very rarely approach a passage without having some idea to start with of it’s meaning and potential application. Of course many times during my study I discover truths which mandate a change in my starting position sometimes a complete change is needed as the word shapes me.
But I entered this text with a great deal of uncertainty; and it was quite disconcerting. At least I knew what it could not mean.
